CIM Group: Where’s My Property Manager?
Residents were given notice back in August regarding the transfer of ownership to CIM group along with an update that the property manager would now be CIM employee Hisako Uyeda.
This would have been great news for the building which was showing many signs of distress due to the management style (or should I say LACK of management style) by Robert Warren, IPS, Malika Joi Davis, and Sergio Caliz.
Unfortunately, Ms. Uyeda has been seen at the property only a handful of times by a few residents and never by many others over the last 3 months. During that time there has been building vandalism and tenants assaulted and battered by some of the crazy people out in the streets early morning (yeah, just like the guy digging through the dumpster every morning).
The back patio lights are out, garbage is constantly strewn around, the lobby chair was vandalized, the Hudson side of the building is now most often used as a toilet for persons to relieve themselves through-out the day. Most recently you could find a pile of vomit by the side entrance of the Hillview for 5 days straight.
Apartments have uninhabitable conditions, leaking pipes and air conditions. There are numerous Los Angeles Housing Department complaints and citations many of which are not even being addressed.
For several months now garbage has remained strewn along the roof-top, bottles, banana peels, cigarette butts, and empty bags.
The building and apartments are infested with drain flies (GROSS).
Anyone who is located on the Hudson, or facing Hollywood can attest to the noise issues. They exceed habitable levels and most residents have received double pane windows to help correct this. They do a very good job of reducing the noise. but they only work if management installs them. Some residents have attested that previous management (before Malika) had started to install the double pane windows but in some instances they didn’t complete or never even started. Many residents received rent concessions just to satisfy the dealing with the GREAT amount of noise coming from Hollywood/Hudson.
All of this and not only is Hisako not on site to address these issues, but if you try and call the Hillview management number you are only greeted with a voice-mail that sends you to a host of other voice-mails. NONE actually get you to a live person. In addition when these issues have been brought up to Hisako perhaps by email, a response is never received and the issues never addressed.
So I ask, Where is My Property Manager Hisako Uyeda.
They should bring Jimmy back ASAP!!!
